Design and Implementation of Light Fidelity System for Image Transmission
Hasan J. Hasan, Zeyad Adnan Saleh, Mazin Ali A. Ali and Mohammed Y.Kamil

The light fidelity (Li-Fi) technology is a new idea in optical wireless communication system which uses a light-emitting diode (LED) as a transmitter source. In this paper, the Li-Fi technology used to transmit data for indoor optical wireless communication applications. A white LED is used as a source and a solar cell is employed as a detector. The transmitted data was an image sent between two computers. The link distance was of 100 cm. The transmission was done with the line of sight (LOS) concept. In this work a hot air is used as a parameter affecting the optical link and takes different angles to show the effect of temperature on the receiver image. Some metrics used to assessment the quality of the image such as mean square error (MSE) and received power.
